The registration of rights to land in Israel is based on the Land Law – 1969. According to Torrens principles, the state is responsible for land units boundaries and their areas. The registration of rights in the land register is within the responsibilities of the Ministry of Justice, on the basis of maps and surveys, checked and approved by the Survey of Israel. Within the Land Settlement, a block map is prepared and the subsequent boundary changes require the preparation of a registration plan.
Subsequent to the Director of Surveys signature on the settlement plans and the signature of the Director's representative on registration plans, the state is responsible for their correctness, for the technical and graphic documentation required for registration and for their dissemination by the Survey of Israel.
